Multiple Sclerosis Clinical Trial
Assessment of tDCS-Induced Neuronal Responses in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) With Advanced MRI
The objective of this trial is to measure the changes in neural activities during tDCS session using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Participants (N=60) (20 Healthy Controls and 40 participants with neurological disorders, ie. multiple sclerosis) will be recruited to complete self-report measures and a brief cognitive assessment and then undergo an hour long stand-alone MRI scan while simultaneously undergoing tDCS stimulation. Methodology for this study is the administration of 15-minutes of of active tDCS during MRI acquisition compared to time without active tDCS.
